Using the Anat Baniel Method
A Personal Letter from Grace, an 85-Year Old Woman
I would like to tell you about my experiences and the impact of the Anat Baniel Method® (ABM) on my recovery from a stroke on October 12, 2013.
I have been practicing your method almost daily for over eight years, at first doing a lesson at a time and later 20 minutes a day plus 20 minutes of other exercises. I began using your method after moving into my condo and seeing other women selling their units because as they aged, they could not go up and down 17 stairs. You were recommended by my daughter’s doctor for MS and she suggested I try it. She gave me several of your CDs and one video.
I am now 85 years of age and last year I had an “acute” stroke in the “pons” area of my brain which affected almost all areas to some degree. My doctors were amazed at how well I responded to their initial examinations, the pressure and strength I had in my hands and legs. They are also amazed at my quick recovery less than four months later.
I immediately started doing ABM movements in the hospital and continued when I got home. My most challenging areas were balance and speech. I remembered your discs, Healthy Necks, Vol 1, CD 4, Imagination and Head Structure, particularly the mouth and tongue. Also Healthy Backs, Vol 1, CD 6, The Power Center, Breathing and Oscillating.
